Many bands have existed under the "Wouldn't-it-be-funny-if..." premise, but few subscribe to their own novelty like the world's only Beatles/Metallica hybrid, Beatallica. It's a solid gimmick: The quartet mashes up the two band's names, songs (e.g. "Blackened the U.S.S.R.") and the musician's names (e.g. Ringo Larz). The scary part is how well it works. In "For Horsemen," the sweet melodies of the Fab Four's "For No One" complement the driving riffs of Metallica's "The Four Horsemen" more than they probably should (and the horn part makes for a surprisingly bitchin' solo). Vocalist Jaymz Lennfield's amazing impression of James Hetfield doesn't hurt matters. This all begs the question: Are the Beatles more metal than we thought, or are Metallica eclectic pop geniuses in hiding? (Hint: The Beatles are metal.)
